US tasks Cameroon gov’t, separatists to halt atrocities on civilians

The United States of America has called on both sides involved in the conflict in the Anglophone regions to halt atrocities committed on civilians and put an end to hostilities.

In a press statement issued by the US Department of State, the US expressed concerns over the crisis in the North West and South West regions.

“The United States expresses grave concern over the burgeoning Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon’s Northwest and Southwest regions,”the US Department of State.

“We urge an immediate halt to the indiscriminate targeting of civilians and burning of houses by Cameroonian government forces and to attacks perpetrated by both Anglophone separatists against security forces and civilians.

The statement also called on a halt on what the US describes as systematic intimidation based on ethnic and religious affiliation.

“The systematic intimidation based on ethnic and religious affiliation, including in Yaoundé and Douala, must stop.

“In memory of American missionary Charles Wesco and all others who have lost their lives in the Anglophone Crisis, we urge all sides to end the violence and enter into broad-based reconciliatory dialogue without preconditions,” the US state department said.

The Statement was released on November 6 as the US condemned the kidnappings of 79 students in Bamenda on Sunday calling for their immediate release.

Local authorities in Cameroon announce the students were released last night with a press conference scheduled later in the day to shed more light.
